DailyGame thoroughly dislikes Lionheart

DailyGame have also reviewed Lionheart. They didn't like it at all, though, giving Lionheart a dismaying 6.5 out of 10.
Do we really need another basic hack and slash dungeon crawler loosely disguised as an RPG? Apparently Reflexive Entertainment thinks we do, as their new title, Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader, is about as basic and derivative as they come. With a history of great games such as Baldurâ€™s Gate and Fallout, itâ€™s hard to imagine that Black Isle published this lackluster title. Câ€™mon guys, we expected far more than this from you! With Lionheart, the developers have basically taken the great character development system of Fallout and tried to squeeze it into the dungeon hack stylings of Baldurâ€™s Gate or Diablo. And while I have nothing against any of those titles, as a synthesis of them, Lionheart comes off as an uninspired effort that lacks enough depth to keep anyone but the most hardcore playing for long.
On the one hand, we have yet another moron who thinks BIS made Fallout and Baldur's Gate. On the other hand, he also recognises how Baldur's Gate was pure hack n slash. I don't know what to feel!
